I need to study whether we should do that, or change the definition of 
source browsing context. It'd be a bit weird for them to be different. 
Also, I expect that if it's good to remove the logic that's Gecko 
currently has to do the Referer stuff, then it'd be equally good to remove 
that logic for the other things the source browsing context is used for, 
e.g. the sandbox security checks.
